Sherco ST 2016 steering head bearing adjustment?

Recommended Posts

If there is a small amount of movement in the forks, can you tighten/adjust the steering head bearings on a 2016 Sherco, or will they need replacing?

Any video links showing how?

Thanks

It's a feel thing adjusting taper roller bearings.

Adjust them so there is a slight amount of drag with the top yoke off, when everything is tightened back up the wheel should stay pointing straight until given a light push but shouldn't take any real effort to move

Remember, you sometime get confuse by the play on the front brake. Make sure that what you feel come from the bearing.

I had considered if it was the loose pads and floating disc that were giving me that bit of movement/sensation.  I am still unsure.

Get the bike supported firmly on a box below the sump then test for play by moving the fork ends by hand.  Easier with a pal sitting on  the bike to prevent it moving and he can feel for play at the bearing.
